Arsenal are ready to offer up to £35million for the services of Michu and Ashley Williams from Swansea, according to the Evening Standard.

Saturday's disappointing 3-1 defeat at home to Aston Villa left many corners of the Gunners' faithful dismayed at the club's lack of spending during the summer transfer window.

Despite Wenger adamant that the club will bring in players before the window closes, the Emirates has yet to see new faces bar 20-year-old Yaya Sanogo, but now it seems the Frenchman is ready to act in order to improve his squad.

The Gunners have made an offer worth £12million for Newcastle's French midfielder Yohan Cabaye, but Alan Pardew will want to keep him at St James' Park at all costs, and a high valuation from Tyneside could prove to be a stumbling block.

Now it seems Arsenal will finally make official bids for Michu and Ashley Williams of Swansea, two players who have been loosely linked with the north-London outfit for the majority of the summer.

Michu was in fine form last year, bagging 22 goals for the Swans in what was a surprisingly successful season. The 27-year-old is thought to be worth around £25million but Wenger will hope to negotiate that price down a little.

Swansea club captain Ashley Williams is seen as a priority signing now that Arsenal have limited options at the back. Arsenal had a £6million bid rejected by Swansea but could go as high as £12million in order to get their man.

With the pressure mounting on Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board, and £70million ready and waiting to be put to use, it's surely only a matter of time before the Gunners' squad witnesses the influx of quality players.
